House to Astonish Episode 116

It's our Christmas gift to you - a slightly belated podcast featuring discussion of the casting of Ant-Man, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Sandman movie, Shia LaBoeuf's plagiarism, Matt Fraction leaving Inhuman and Zeb Wells leaving Elektra, the return of Stray Bullets, Mike Carey and Salvador Larocca's X-Men OGN and Stephen Wacker's job move. We're also reviewing The Illegitimates, The Midas Flesh and Harley Quinn, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is just your dad really.


Hear! Al briefly sing a They Might Be Giants tune. Boggle! At both Paul and Al admitting that they really don't get one of the most celebrated newspaper strips of all time. Wonder! If there is no awards ceremony because Al was too disorganised to ask for nominations (yes). All this plus a clown car, a pint of drawing pins and the Coen brothers movie that's happening behind the DC offices.

As always, we want to know what you think of the things we've discussed on the podcast, including (but not limited to):

  • What comics classics that everyone else loves have you just never "got"?
  • What's the most un-adaptable comic Hollywood could try to adapt into a movie?
  • What will Shia LaBoeuf try to pass off as his own next?

The podcast is here, or here on Mixcloud.
